It all comes down to the hunt for the black box in tonight’s explosive season finale of White Collar.
Everyone wants the same thing, to find the box Ellen hid many years ago, but all for different reasons. While Neal and his father know where the box is located, they think they have time in finding it. Unfortunately Agent Calloway wants her hands on it as well and informs Peter that the FBI is going into the Empire State buidling and won’t be leaving until they retrieve it. She knows Pratt wants it too but makes it clear she will see it before either men and then make a decision on what to do.
Peter meets with his former boss, Agent Hughes, who tells Peter that Calloway and Pratt are standing in the way of justice and he needs to fight back, doing whatever it takes to find that box first.
Now that time is of the essence, Neal, Mozzie and James put their heads together to come up with a plan. They figure something out and Neal brings Sarah, who is getting ready to depart for Paris, in on the scheme. It involves a marriage proposal and a trip to the top of the Empire State building.
As Peter, Jones, Diane, and a slew of agents descend on the building, Neal, Moz and James spring into action. The only problem so far is that the FBI has been instructed to arrest Neal and his father on site due to the fact Pratt is claiming assualt from their earlier meeting in the park. Neal and Sarah make their way to to observation deck to enact the proposal while Moz & James make the discovery.
